What do you do when, one Christmas, your father hands you his terrible, self-published erotic novel? If you’re Jamie Morton, you create a comedy podcast entitled My Dad Wrote a Porno and read it chapter by chapter to a delighted global audience. The podcast stormed to the top of iTunes charts and, in 2016, a bestselling book was released. Jamie talks with Ben Jenkins about the simultaneously hilarious and horrific world of My Dad Wrote a Porno.

This event will be Closed Captioned. The National Relay Service is available to assist with phone bookings. Call Roslyn Packer Theatre Box Office on (02) 9250 1988 or email boxoffice@sydneytheatre.com.au to book access tickets.
